Children join Nursery in the term they turn 2 ½, starting in Seahorses and rising to Starfish in the year they turn four. Seahorses attend for three sessions minimum a week, and Starfish for six. From here, children automatically filter into the Infants for Reception.
The main intake point is Reception which children join in the year they turn five. Year 2 is the oldest year group in this department.
Pupils move up to Year 3 when they are rising 7 years old. There are opportunities for 7+ Scholarships and this is a main intake point for external candidates to transfer to Meoncross from other local schools. Children remain in the Junior department until the end of Year 6.
